person uses an average of 100 gallons of water every day. man: what it takes to actually make clean water is somewhat a mystery to most customers. woman: so how does water get from the river into your house, or here at school? woman: somebody has to bring that water to us, and somebody has to take it away when we're finished with it. man: the water infrastructure is vital for disease protection, fire protection, basic sanitation, economic development, and for our quality of life. man: you just can't visualize all the assets that are under our feet. we have about two million miles of pipe in this nation. if you're walking around in an urban area, you're probably stepping on a pipe. man: our grandparents paid for, and put in for the first time, these large distribution systems. woman: and in many cases, it's not been touched since. man: we're at a critical turning point. much of that infrastructure is wearing out. narrator: our water infrastructure is made up of complex, underground systems that function continuously. these 10 locations take a look at the history, design, and challeng

be useful for that. thank you, mr. bridges. >> commissioner? >> yes. i wanted to make a quick comment because i know we are running out of time. i wanted to thank both the staff and lan ar and everyone involved in the report. it's very comprehensive have and i'm glad to hear the report here because when i read it i was a little concerned about some of the numbers and i take to heart the pledges not only the good faith efforts in the past but going forward and i look forward to the next report and i'm pleased to hear that all of these strategies are being thought through are in my experience excellent strategies. when you look at a scope if it's too large and if folks are not competing and you break it down, and if people are not getting noticed because they are tired of being told that something is available and it not available to them and they are debriefed and they didn't do as well as they thought they could. all of these strategies which i hear are being thought through certainly i think are excellent strategies going forward. the only small question i have is the issue o

closely tracking the case. thank you for being with us. >> thanks. >> kind of remarkable that this is bigger than the hedge fund would ever get. >> yes. and at the end of the day even after paying almost $2 billion to the government stephen coen will still have a very sizable fortune and of course his lifestyle is not going to take that big of a hit. he is still buy expensive painting, and still be admired on wall streert. >> sure. i think as journalists, we can fairly say some of the stuff that they are accused of having done are kind of disgusting. this is pure old fashioned insider trading. give me some examples of what they were accused of doing. >> yes, this is something new. essentially the government accused the company of allowing quite a large number of employees to trade on non-public material information, so that is information that has the power to move a stock price that other people in the market don't have. and his company hired people specifically, allegedly, because they had contacts at publicly traded companies. he also allegedly hired a particular portfolio manager

several letters and we've worked with people in the past and our e-mail that we used to e-mail blast people. for some reason there were people that said they didn't get notice. we had a copy of the letter that we sent to him. he turned in a bid four months after. we were able to reverse a contract that had gone out and awarded to him because he was local. so we are trying. and then once we found that situation, we made sure that all the data we had was correct for the next phase. we made sure he was in the data base to get the notification the next time around. we've been improved but something address are in correct and they haven't gone through the certification and we are just going through the most recent list that we have. >> okay. >> george bridges, i would like to add that often the companies will have an e-mail and it might be an admin person and they are no longer there and when the offering comes to them the small business has not changed their e-mail address. we try to remind them, if there is anything that has changed, make sure you contact either us or the center c

excited, i know it is a great thing. >> thank you for joining us. >>> erin, thank you, anderson is in the philippines. he is trying to fly into the hardest hit area, tacloban city, but the process is making it hard for planes to land. the tropical system is arriving hard on the heels of the typhoon. the storm left tacloban in terrible, terrible shape, almost total devastation in much of the city. nearly a quarter of a million people lived here, now entire neighborhoods are gone. survivors are filling the streets, there are bodies, in fact, everywhere. what there is not enough is food, and crucially, drinkable water. access in and out of tacloban is very difficult. the u.s. marines are helping with round-the-clock operations. there is access to british help, and they are teeming into the area. nobody knows the full scope of the damage from this record-setting storm. more from "ac360's" randi kaye. >> reporter: the terror began with haiyan's winds, gusts reaching 235 miles per hour, well above the threshold of a category 5 hurricane. all many can do is simply pray. as millions brace

all of those things into considerations because i personally would like us to have something very similar in order to do our jobs for efficiently. >> so i think your point is very well taken, would love to have the application here at the board of supervisors and to put it into context again, we're doing a lot as a city to rethink about how we operate our city government, and we live in the hub of innovation across the globe here in san francisco and in many ways for many year, san francisco as a city government has been behind of adopting that innovation, we're doing a ton of work on it, we have a long ways to go, open data is but a part of that in a way to have an impact, i think the impact can be real within our city government, but i think what you're speaking to is a broader topic of how we use technology to apply to our city government and our day-to-day jobs as supervisors or people within different departments. >> and i would say i would want us to head in a direction when putting together this overall policy and one that would make us more efficient and one that will mati

equipment which is somewhat lower. in terms of the zoning, the zoning is u mu, urban mixed use, one of our provision in the code that it actually permits. it does allow pdr industrial uses and also allows residential and retail and other types of uses. that ties into the issue of ground floor commercial or retail space. we don't require in this area that you have retail space on the ground floor. there are specific streets and blocks within each neighborhood where it is required that you have ground floor space and usually those are more established commercial corridors but in the manuality -- majority of the neighborhood we don't require space. we don't have store fronts if there is blocks and blocks of empty commercial space. regarding the appeal language, we can check that. that's in the application itself. it may incorrectly state that you appeal to the board of supervisors. i will have to look that up. the motion approved by the planning commission states that the appeal is within 15 days. regarding the shadow, just to clarify again, that shadow that the applicant was showing,
